We were wanting to stay a night in Perth to go to a concert, and all of the good city hotels were fully booked. I had noticed the signs to the Huntingtower a few times while passing on the Crieff road, and as it is only a short distance out felt it was worth a try.
The hotel is part of a small group, and is a country house type, with an original building and a tastefully added more recent wing.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful from our first contact by phone onwards. I got the impression that the ethos was to create an unpretentious genuine Scottish experience which foreign travelers and locals would appreciate.
We had our dinner in the traditional restaurant, and the quality of food, value for money and environment was excellent. After dinner, the taxi ride to the concert was a short ride into Perth.
The room we had (417) was in the modern wing overlooking the front, and was specious, well appointed and clean. We had room service breakfast which was good and arrived promptly and without fuss.
Being critical, I found the lack of bathroom bits a bit irritating. The hotel has gone in for Travel Lodge style soap dispensers, which either shoot out meager amounts of soap sideways, or not at all. I realise fully cost implications, but with a global perspective, giving a small cake of soap and a sachet of shampoo is a drop in the ocean. I was also surprised that a hotel proudly announcing green credentials reverts to plastic cups (wrapped again in plastic) in the bathroom. We were staying a Saturday, and would have appreciated if Sunday breakfast could have extended to 11 (10am) and checkout to 12 (11am).
On the whole, it was a very good experience, and I would certainly stay again if visiting Perth.
